(CORNWALL) As the only pharmacy in the Eastern Ontario counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry that serves the needs of hundreds of people who live with ostomies, Medical Arts Pharmacy is today announcing its launch of the first and only regional, bilingual website where customers can order online and enjoy free delivery anywhere in Canada, on orders of $75. or more.
Pharmacy owners Harry Haramis, Suzie Pilon and Josée Lemay say online service will especially help those who live in rural areas where ostomy supplies are rarely close to home.
Ostomy Boutique features all major ostomy products, useful links and a Q&A section led by a licensed enterostomal (ET) nurse.
Often a topic “off” the public radar screen, or one discussed in hushed tones, living with an ostomy is increasingly discussed openly. Thousands of ostomies are performed annually across Canada for people of all ages and conditions ranging from ulcerative colitis (UC) to Crohn’s disease, trauma (such as car accidents), colon cancer and others.
Medical Arts Pharmacy is the only locally owned (since 1956), two-location community pharmacy with six fulltime pharmacists and more than 50 local employees. The pharmacy makes house calls and specializes in providing comprehensive services to community families, as well as long-term care, group and domiciliary homes.
